God, Judgment Day and the Temple Recommend Questions

If I die tomorrow and am asked by God himself the exact same questions that are asked currently in the temple recommend interview, I believe I would look him in the eye and answer exactly the same way I answer now.

If God looked at me and said, "Tell me more about how you interpret the questions" - and if I explained - and if God said, "That's not what I meant by those questions," I believe and hope I would grin and say,

"Then you should have made sure I knew that before now." 

I believe God would smile back at me and say,

"You answered according to the dictates of your conscience all your life. No harm; no foul. That's what I kept saying the Atonement is all about, right?

I am sure you don't mean it in this way, but your response brought this to mind.

"the Lord maketh no such thing known unto us."

I am sure that you have inquired of the Lord.

Yeah, that's not the way I meant it. *grin*

I only mean that I believe God is merciful to those who follow what they believe, even if they end up having been wrong.
